[tps_header]CAGE THE ELEPHANT[/tps_header]
Cage the Elephant, famous for their live performance, did not disappoint the packed crowd on Friday. Cage played a mix of tunes from Melophobia, Thank You Happy Birthday and Cage The Elephant, hitting almost all the fan favorites.
It didn’t take long for Matt Shultz to remove his shirt to an excited audience. Cage The Elephant played at a level of energy that I didn’t see matched the rest of the weekend. Shultz and the other band members danced, grooved, and never stopped moving.
The audience matched this level. A new crowd surfer popped up every couple of minutes, and mosh pits broke out in the crowd, much to security’s dismay. Girls flashed themselves, boys removed their shirts, and people rolled around in the mud all for Cage The Elephant.
Shultz led the crowd in singing Happy Birthday to Sir Paul McCartney, who was performing later that night. McCartney turned 73 the day before.
Cage The Elephant commanded the stage, ran through the crowd, and captivated the dedicated audience in their hour or so set.
